Remember Sweety Khanna (Mayoori) from Papa Kehte Hain? Well, she’s now the industry head at Google India.
Mayoori Kango or as we know her, Sweety Khanna quit acting back in the 2000s. The former actress opted for a corporate career instead and now she’s a huge name in the digital advertising world.
The light-eyed ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi, Kuch Door Chalte Hi’ girl is far from naive (just look at where her life choices got her).
Mayoori has now joined Google India as its industry head, in charge of agency business.
Before joining Google India, former actress Mayoori was the Managing Director at Performics.Resultrix, which is a part of the Publicis Groupe.
Her resume is quite impressive. She has also worked for Digitas as an Associate Director (Media), and as Chief Digital Officer at Zenith.
Like most young people, Mayoori wasn’t always that clear about what she wanted to do. She didn’t have a strong sense of direction until she quit acting.
